"Dear Al, Thank you so much for all the help you've given us as our realtor. We had an excellent home buying experience. Your professionalism, knowledge, and friendly attitude have made it all the more enjoyable. We especially appreciate that you were never too busy to answer our questions, and that you always returned phone calls promptly. You made us aware of potential problems before they became actual ones, and always had our best interests at heart. Even after we closed on our property, you continued to have close contact and made sure that our transition was as smooth as could be. We would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house, and we will definitely use you in the future should we decide to move again. We will tell everyone we had the best realtor in the world and we really mean it!"
